Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) released the following statement today in recognition of Veterans Day and the tremendous sacrifice that military veterans in Connecticut and across America have made for their country.
"Today, we recognize all those who have served in our nation's armed forces and we pay tribute to the brave men and women who have made it possible for us to live in peace, freedom, and security. And we never forget those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
"We as a nation are indebted to the selfless service of our nation's soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsman who volunteer to serve and work tirelessly to protect our freedom. It is thanks to the sacrifice of service members past and present and their families that our country remains free and strong. We take time today to reflect on the courage and bravery of our military veterans from Connecticut and across the country and acknowledge the sacrifice of those who have served, and those who have given their lives to secure our liberty."
